About Us

The African Studies Women’s Caucus was established in 1970 to promote the study of women and gender within the various disciplines of African studies, to promote the greater inclusion of African women in scholarship and in the ASA, to ensure an active and representative role for women within the ASA at all levels of leadership and engagement, and to develop scholarly and activist links with women in Africa.
